Timeline

1872 - In the year that Samuel Lovitt was born, on December 4th, the empty American ship Mary Celeste was found in the Atlantic Ocean.

1964 - At the age of 92 years old, Samuel was alive when in June, three young civil rights workers - Andrew Goodman and Mickey Schwerner from New York City, and James Chaney from Meridian, Mississippi - were kidnapped and murdered in Mississippi. Working with "Freedom Summer", they were registering African-Americans to vote in the Southern states. Their bodies were found two months later. Although it was discovered that the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, the Neshoba County Sheriff's Office and the Philadelphia, Mississippi Police Department were involved, only 7 men were convicted and served less than six years.

1967 - In the year of Samuel Lovitt's passing, on October 2nd, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black US Supreme Court justice.
